This 11th July marks the 24th anniversary of the Srebrenica genocide where over 8,000 Bosnian Muslim men and boys were systematically murdered simply because of their religious identity in the worst atrocity that occurred on European soil since the Second World War. Remembering Srebrenica is the sole organiser of the UK’s Srebrenica Memorial Day commemorations.
Since its creation in 2013, the organisation has educated over 90,000 young people on the lessons from Srebrenica, organised nearly 6,500 memorial activities across the Country and created 1,200 Community Champions who pledge to stand up to hatred and intolerance in their communities. By remembering the past, we hope to learn lessons for the future and to promote a safer and more tolerant society for all.
Remembering Srebrenica would like to invite you and your council to commemorate the 24th anniversary of the Srebrenica genocide, and join us in teaching others about the consequence of hatred and intolerance during the week 7th – 14th July 2019. We have numerous resources and suggestions on how you can join us in commemoration.
